What we are looking for • Good news story: • Bad news story:
The structure of news pieces • Intro (bed) • “This is NAME with the news” • ‘This is Burst’ (bed) • News piece – spoken audio & vox pops • ‘Burst News’ (bed) • “For up to date news stories visit www.burstradio.org.uk, or follow us on twitter @BurstRadio” • Outro (bed)
Step 1: Recording • The better the recording the less editing you have to do! • Follow Jen’s speaking tips
Step 2: Save copies • Get into the habit of saving, and well labelling all audio, in case something goes wrong in editing. • I label mine pre-edit (raw audio), edit and final.
Step 3: Chopping • Taking only the audio you want to include. • Zoom in to make sure you don’t cut out the end of words.
Step 4: Changing • Change audio around to the order you want – what is most effective? • Use either the move tool or normal cut and paste shortcuts (ctrl/cmd x and v)
Step 5: Compress & Normalisation • Reduces volume variation – takes away random loud/ quiet parts to improve overall sound of the piece.
Step 6: Add the News Bed • Place the bed on the top track • Move the spoken audio to match up with the bed structure.
Step 7: Auto-Duck • This lowers the bed where there is spoken audio underneath. • Experiment with the ‘duck amount’, but we usually go for 19dbs on news.
Step 8: Listen back • Make sure the auto-ducking has worked, and that the bed isn’t too loud. • Check you are happy with how the story sounds.
Step 9: Export • We upload news stories as mp3 so it is important finished news stories are exported.
Step 10: Listen to yourself on the radio! • If you follow all these tips you should be creating amazing news stories from start to finish. • Now lets see you have a go!
